About this listing
Welcome to our 3 acre mini-farm & home! Enjoy privacy and views on our quiet hill, just 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. Enjoy our Blueberry and Strawberry rooms with a private bathroom. Perfect for families or friends traveling together or couples looking for a room with a private bathroom. Make yourselves at home! (If you don't need both rooms, just send us a message and we will work something out.)
Our mini-farm is peaceful place, but still close to all that Asheville has to offer.
Recently remodeled, the house features bamboo floors, bright open spaces and a beautiful kitchen bar with van-gogh granite counters.
The farm is home to over 500 blueberry, elderberry & cider apples plants. The plants are young so they are not loaded with fruit just yet, but you are free to pick all you can eat in season (mid-June to late July).
Western North Carolina is the world's per capita leader in farmers markets and craft breweries with over 30 in the area, but we also have great restaurants, culture and music (amazing buskers downtown) too! Noble Cider is moving right down the road from the farm and plans to open in spring of 2015 and Addison Farms Vineyard and tasting room is just 15 minutes further north of Asheville.
Bedrooms, private bathroom, living room & kitchen. All outdoor spaces.
Interaction with guests
I do travel alot these days to manage a 4 acre blueberry stand, Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm in Cedar Grove, NC, but if I am home I am usually working on the garden, cooking or playing with my daughter. I am happy to give any recommendations about food, sites, hikes etc. I've lived in Asheville for 14 years now, and owned a local wine distribution company, so I have an insiders take on the best restaurants and bars in town.
In the south we call it the 'cut.' Its basically a valley with one entry and exit. Its quiet mostly (on weekends it can get a little exciting) and reminds me of a small South American village. Nice clusters of small homes.
No buses or trains. Taxi is about $25 to downtown. Uber can get downtown for $18 during non-peak hours.
Other things to note
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, I usually prepare it when I'm home and am happy to have you join us for breakfast. Just let me know.
Clean up after yourselves please.
Pets are fine with prior notice but we do ask for a $20 cleaning fee for shedding dogs.

I'm Lyndon and my wife Amie and I, would love to welcome you to our home! I am North Carolina born and raised and never left Asheville after receiving my degree from UNC-A in environmental economics. In my spare time you can usually find me working or playing outside. We both love to cook, garden and spend time with Alexis, my lovely 6 year old Daughter. We are constantly working on building and establishing the farm here in Leicester, NC, but we also have a 30 year old blueberry farm and fermentarium in Cedar Grove, NC.
You are always welcome to join us for any meal we are enjoying. One of the best qualities about Asheville is the community, so naturally we mostly eat foods we have grown ourselves or grown by our neighbors, including local meats.
I also was a founding partner of Ashevilles only local wine distribution company and Amie has been a wine consultant for over 10 years so together we are well schooled in the best eats and drinks in Asheville.
We like to have fun in the house and enjoy playing music. Amie and I both play guitar, Lexi recently started piano lessons and got a Ukulele and Amie just started learning mandolin! We all enjoy learning about new ideas, people and places. We love travel and absorbing other cultures people and food.
